Not sure whether this right place to post this, but as it is related to Embedded System Design, I am posting in this segment.
I am trying to push Zynq device in designing our standardized module which will be used in multiple projects.
But getting tough competition from multi-core SoCs designed by various vendors. We are not comparing it with any Micro-controller or FPGA, but with other full SoC.
Also its not easy in convincing upper management as they question on proven device, safety, time to market and tool chain.
Even though we are using FPGAs from many years, pushing Zynq is bit difficult.
Does any one has success stories on Zynq specific to railway industry, please do share with me. Other domain, like aerospace, medical and defense related success stories will also help.
Other vendors are coming and presenting how their SoC is technically better than Zynq. Does Xilinx has any such documents where we can show Zynq is better.

Not sure if the forums is the best place to ask this.
You should contact you FAE/Authorized Distributor/Sales contact. They should have also some data to help you.

I know some successful stories with Zynq (or ZynqMP SoC).
How ever I can not share them to you. Because there are NDA information.
I'm sure that SoC (include ASIC and SoC FPGA) is difficult to develop product.
Especially, these devices request a lot of knowledge to develop product.
I'm sure that "Assemble a lot of knowledge to develop product (Bus architecture, simulator, coding style, SI, DRAM, PLL, Linux, CPU, FPGA fabric, framework, git, OpenCV and so on) and consider them" is certain.

Thanks for reply !.
Well, are there any documents, which can technically help me to show Zynq is better than other SoCs??
How about concepts of proven device, safety, time to market and tool chain?

In my investigated information, some products are based on Xilinx's evaluation boards.
Of cause these products are used to original PCB. But there are same devices (Zynq, DRAM, DCDC IC and so on) on these PCBs.
Also, it seems to use petalinux tool chain to develop these products.
Also there are OSS which are python or ruby or ....
